    Free version 6.5 - is there a socket limit or not?

    alphadog00 Novice

      The Vsphere site says the following in regards to the free hypervisor, but every site online says 2 sockets only. If I buy a quad xeon box (R820) can I use all 4 CPU for a total of 32 cores? Or will i only have access to 2 CPU and 16 physical cores? This is for a home lab, but I need to run some heavy VMs and I want room to expand.

      Specfications

      • Number of cores per physical CPU: No limit
      • Number of physical CPUs per host: No limit
      • Number of logical CPUs per host: 480
      • Maximum vCPUs per virtual machine: 8
